Have city given up on sterling eds? i mean they could buy delph or probably any player they want if it was English quota they were looking at? it has gone rather quiet.

We'll probably hear more after July 1st. That date seems to be getting banded about a bit on here for FFP reasons or something.


2.) 29 Jun 2015 10:44:52
What has Delph got to do with Sterling? Just because he's English? I'd say they'd prefer players that are actually good though, they don't need more Rodwells & Sinclairs.

Hi eds,

would we be interested in romain hamouma and max gradel from saint etienne. also one player i higly rate is wissem ben yedder but he seems to move elsewhere .
and i think we spent our money on the wrong belgian kid, world cup hangover it was,

{Ed002's Note - No.}

eds what do you make of wisem bin yedder of tolouse . i got a chance to watch him play in a tolouse game a year back and he was quality . seems like he is doing well this season too. would he suit liverpool ? i don't see why not .

akshit

{Ed002's Note - He is likely going to move to Marseille in the summer when Gignac leaves.}

carlos vela anyone?
he is monstorous for sociedad.
i can't believe how strong he is. somewat like hulk.
but pacier and better.
the mexican is the type of player we need. because he can play all over the frnt ST AM LW RW .
though his workrate can be a problem. {Ed002's Note - A couple of weeks back a representative of Luis Suarez told one of the clubs that they were trying to get interested in their client that Liverpool will look to move for Damaio if he is still available or Carlos Vela.}

akshit

1.) Is this if Suarez is sold, Ed? {Ed002's Note - Of course.}


2.) Hey ed, would this move for damiao or vela be as a result of suarez leaving or would it be as an alternative to willian/mkhitaryan/costa
Thanks {Ed002's Note - All of those players were looked at with a view to Suarez leaving.}


3.) I would take vela I thought he had potential even when he was at arsenal. Could get damaio and vela for price of suarez


4.) Id go for them both as Vela can play across the front 3/4, & Damiao would add goals for sure. It will only happen if Suarez is sold to Madrid.


5.) Is this the same player who couldn't make it at Arsenal? Didn't he go on loan in the Championship too and not score many/any?


6.) I'd be happy with Vela as long as we still invested in a CB


7.) Ed all of the above we're looked at on the understanding that Suarez was leaving? How come we were heavily in for William then with Suarez still here and not looking likely to leave? Do u know something we don't then? Just trying to make sense of what u have said that's all. {Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly the situation with Suarez. Over and over and over again.}


8.) Um, no thanks to Vela, that would not be any kind of marquee signing, more like a fifty quid Argos tent signing.


9.) Liverpool had scouts at many Sociedad games last season as I have said in some other posts.

The problem with Vela is that Arsenal have the first option on him as written into his contract. that price is way below the market price he would fetch, I believe around 8 million euros. I am not sure when the option stops.

I understand Roma bid 15+ million for him.

Vela did not really want to come back but he understood if arsenal had taken out their option, he would have needed to come back.

A friend of mine here in Madrid, said that if Liverpool had been clever, they could have sold Suarez to Arsenal for 40million+1 euros, and then asked to buy Vela at the cost Arsenal could buy him back, thus arsenal using their option. Since Arsenal had no intention of buying him, both teams would have been better off and Liverpool would have had 40 million+1 to spend.

How much of this was possible, I don't know but it was a possibility if Vela was on the reds radar.


10.) Personally if what you say is correct I don't think that wouldve been smart because arsenal would have suarez which is something we all don't want to happen


11.) Anyone who discounts carlos vela has to be insane.
if u follow la liga even a bit. he was instrumental for sociedad champions league embrace not only scoring 14 but also chipping in with 9 assists and assists to assist.
he was the twice the player griezmann or illarramendi were.
surely if we signed aspas, vela is a player twice his caliber.
the main feature of his play were opening the stuck up defenses
however his work rate is a problem. he is not the one to track back.
he was not successful at arsenal because he was wasted behind walcott . one his chance came wilshere made immense roads into the team and was preferred.
chamberlain signing meant he was surplus.

i don't think we should really judge the team till 10 games. i think we have a good gameplan and klopp is certain on what players he wants to play. In a while results shall follow too. But till then we could do with supporting the club.
I get it all other club bar say arsenal have strengthened and look very good. and man city, man united and Chelsea have got it right from the go. But we haven't and we should give it time. the football isn't bad. just some old problems still exist. dare i say we miss the x-facotr still. but i think firmino or mane will provide it as the season goes on. let's just back the team patiently while also paying no attention to what others are achieving around us. We have a good team a good manager and we will get it right in some weeks. I think i will give it time till Christmas before calling off this season. It is just too early to nag our socks off people.

1.) 29 Aug 2016 07:54:00
If we win 5 or more of our next 7 then after 10 we will be in a great position! Very doable and I'm with you 10 games is the minimum you should start judging after really.


2.) 29 Aug 2016 08:48:00
For the million time - sharing disappointment or frustration here from the team results is not 'not supporting' it. People here who go to games always support the team on the pitch and want it desperately to win. You can support the team and still say here we played rubbish and you can hope we take the title and still predict here that realistically, we finish outside the top 4. Nothing to do with lack of support.

Re waiting after 10 games. It is very possible we may improve later this season. We had some good runs last year and in the year before. Will it be enough to get us anything by then though? This season looks very different to last. Last year all the big teams struggled with consistency. This year at least three hit the ground running.


3.) 29 Aug 2016 10:05:21
Why judge after 10? Why not 15. Or 18? It's arbitrary whatever way you look at it.

The end of the season is the time to judge whether the team has had a successful season and the crass knee jerk reactions can be avoided. clearly though, that won't even last 10 games on this site.


4.) 29 Aug 2016 10:34:49
As for the 10 games I'd just say that as a timeframe as we should at that stage be looking to have a settled strongest 11 with everyone coming to the peak of their fitness. Early season will always throw up a few wild card results.


5.) 29 Aug 2016 11:03:28
Agree with Marshy, you have to play every team home and away to get a fair reflection.


6.) 29 Aug 2016 11:17:04
I'd agree with the 10 game minimum. It's a quarter of the season gone by, and you can base opinions on a little more basis and foundation. Of course, it's better to do it even after 20 games (reinforcing what Marshy said about it all being arbitrary), but there's no sense or logic to sounding the panic sirens and calling out for the manager's head after only 3 games.


 

 

22 Aug 2016 07:20:49
i feel playing 2 upfront ( origi/ ings and studger/ firmino) against lesser oppositions atleast who we know will defend deep shall help our cause. ( obviously defending better would help our cause even more but that is a bigger problem and i don't see that being solved atleast till mid season)
As was with burnley we hardly had a body in the opposition box when it mattered
We have always played well with two strikers upfront. Well burnley did us in with two strikers.

akshit

1.) 22 Aug 2016 09:10:51
Couldn't agree more fella, fed up of this one striker or false 9 stuff that's taken over in the PL.


2.) 22 Aug 2016 09:29:00
Absolutely agree.

Against teams like that, we need to go two up front, move the ball quickly, get it wide and into the the forwards. Only quick, fast play will breakdown teams that sit deep and lots of other teams will do that too (if we go goals behind then even more so! ) Slow sideways passing in front of 2 banks of 4 is pointless.

Two up top, pace on the wings (Mane or maybe Ojo) and a midfield player that will drive through a heavily packed opposition midfield - Emre Can is perfect at that role.


3.) 22 Aug 2016 11:16:24
Puzzled

Where are you fitting both Firmino and Coutinho in this site up? I agree with you view on playing fast and direct football. UTD dominated English football with tha and set up. We have too many players unstoppable at the moment and we need to figure out a way to fit in all those big names.


4.) 22 Aug 2016 12:24:44
We need origi in against a lot of sides for me as he's the only one with seemingly any aerial presence and willingness to be in the box when we shift it wide. that was the problem against burnley 40 odd crossing opportunities with no one in the box. not saying we need a benteke to be in there but origi at least will make defenders think there is the option to whip it in play it in behind or move it through our creative.
Burnley just copped on that they could play ridiculously narrow because even with space out wide there were rarely any options for a cross.


5.) 22 Aug 2016 14:23:11
Yeah, it's the running off the ball that will open up the 2 banks of 4. As soon as it becomes static, it's really difficult to break down.

Bad example using teams like Barca, but it's the 2nd and 3rd pass that kills teams like that into the runner off the ball. Quick, short incise football breaks down the 2 banks of 4.


6.) 22 Aug 2016 14:20:52
Sturridge and Origi upfront together would make a difference. Coutinho and Mane out wide to put in dangerous crosses and we'd be bound to score eventually.


 

 

17 Aug 2016 18:32:51
Mane out for 4 months. Now we definitely need a LB. :P.

akshit

1.) 17 Aug 2016 19:25:10
No he's not, he's going to miss the Burnley game that's all.


2.) 17 Aug 2016 20:00:45
There's plenty of cover available so I wouldn't really worry.


3.) 18 Aug 2016 02:54:02
I think Gini should take Mane's place for the Burnley game. He'd be able to have a bigger impact on the game, from the Arsenal game it looks as if he prefers to play more attacking, he gets into the box any opportunity he can.

Could have done without that game. Not very good scheduling that. Can't expect much game in under 24 hours. But didn't really showed enough. Anyhow can't wait for the league to start now.

1.) 07 Aug 2016 16:48:30
The entire purpose of preseason games is to get fit. Would you rather they put their last real game time push 3 days later? So tired of the whining about this game already. Ed001 said it best. Preseason games are for fitness purposes only. You think Barcelona is at all concerned that we beat them 4-0?


2.) 07 Aug 2016 20:37:26
Results don't matter I agree but Barcelona got thrashed in a Wembley friendly with Messi and Suarez on the pitch in a team that don't like to lose any game nor have a habit of losing games period. That loss will stick for a while (not long) IMO.

It could happen if we sell studger coutinho and benteke this summer.
you would think we would go for a superstar player if we sell all three. So its not totally out of the question neither is selling all 3. It has been said plenty of times this will be the maddest transfer window.
and as Macca has suggested if FSG are to sell the club eds suggest offers from middle east and china can be on the table. so maybe we will have a sizeable transfer budget
there is too much that could happen in the next 3 months.

I might get hate for this but I think the lad was trying way too hard to get into klopp plans and has overexerted himself without caring for his body. trying to attempt a challenge in the dying moments of a game is what lfc website quotes, I don't mind his heart and soul for the game nature but players with injury concerns need to be carefully nurtured too. this is very unfortunate- and dare I say seems career threatening. this is where you see a stark difference in Sturridge approach, he looks to take care of himself foremost and yet is committed to Liverpool cause. I know all this seems me turning on Ings but I was so looking forward to his return in premier league games. I believe he would hav given us an extra edge esp in games that are to come.

Well we conceded two stupid goals against Burnley. And takes the demon out of us. If it were our day it could have been 5-2 really. We couldn't just hit the target. More than credit to Burnley who did what was expected of them it was us who shot ourselves in the foot conceding two soft goals.

If we do play like we know we can i don't see chelsea having any chance. i am more though worried about set pieces. i think in ivanovic cahill luiz and costa they will be a menace from set piece situations. willian also delivers well. I think a setpiece might just decide the game agianst us.
